    Microsoft’s Sara Ford celebrated her 100th "Tip of the Week" a couple of weeks ago by publishing a list…

    I recently installed Visual Studio 2005 (Professional) but mistakenly selected VB Developer instead of Web Developer in the initial set-up.

    Do you have any idea how this can be fixed?  I have searched around for an answer but I’ve had absolutely no luck.

    Go to Tools – Import Export Settings, choose to Reset Settings, and select the Web Developer.  This will reset the environment just as if you had selected Web Developer from the First-Launch Dialog.
